Back home, just in time for riding season

Got home from my month-long business trip around the world. Whew.  Was a great trip, but I sure worked many long days.  I even had a bit of free time in Auckland, New Zealand and decided to rent a bike.

The rental was from this place:  Aiden was great to deal with and he set me up with a nice Suzuki DL650 V-Strom. I rode about 400 Kms from Auckland down around the Coromandel Penisula. Spectacular vistas, stunning scenery, and terrificly twisty tarmac.

Somewhere along the Coromandel Forest Park

The sunset was great - a perfect end to a perfect day.
